Coach Brad Lokitz has been doing CrossFit for over 8 years, and found his passion for the sport after realizing he loved helping people through their health and fitness journey. With a 15 year rugby career behind him, Brad prides himself in being proactive about health and fitness. When asked what his specialty within CrossFit is, he quotes Greg Glassman, the creator of CrossFit: "Nature will punish the specialist, I want to be a jack-of-all-trades and master of none. Specialization is for insects. I’m looking for breadth of experience, and anyone who is at all wise realizes that being a specialist represents a compromised position." While Brad may spend a lot of time at CrossFit Knoxville, he also is a scientist, holding a PhD in Polymer Science and Engineering as well as an MBA.
